E. Lombardo


Plate 39: And so was his father, from The Caprichos, 2016
Etching and aquatint

Edition of 12. Plate 39 from the series The Caprichos. Inscribed in the plate top right: ’39’; inscribed in the plate lower center: ‘And so was his father’. Numbered, signed, and dated in pencil.

The Caprichos, by Emily Lombardo, is a series of etchings which are in direct conversation and homage to Francisco Goya’s Los Caprichos, 1799. Both reveal the dark underbelly of cultural movements which ultimately serve to divide society across economic, racial, political, religious, and gender lines. Lombardo brings these issues into contemporary light through a queer feminist lens.

This edition was published by Childs Gallery and printed at The Center for Contemporary Printmaking (Norwalk, CT) by printer Opal Ecker DeRuvo. Hahnemühle Copperplate Bright White paper and Portland Black ink where used for this edition.
